Glitter UK return bid for NHS care

Gary Glitter wants to come back to Britain to get help for medical problems, it was revealed yesterday.

The partially-deaf singer, 64, will walk free from jail in days — and hopes to get NHS care.

Speaking in Thu Duc, Vietnam, he said: “Conditions aren’t perfect here so I can’t cure my illness as I’d like to.

“I need access to a UK hospital.”

The paedophile — real name Paul Gadd — was caged for three years in 2006 for molesting girls aged 11 and 12.

He once vowed never to return to the UK but will be deported to London following his release.
